Well it’s been a minute since I’ve posted something from Scandinavia but this is nice. Thomax blesses us with a batch of 7 remixes, with some real melodic beats.
ALBUM: One Be Lo – L.A.B.O.R.
IT’S HERE! Four years since The R.E.B.I.R.T.H. One Be Lo, half of the legendary Binary Star and one of the best MCs around, drops L.A.B.O.R. (Language Arts Based On Reality). And it’s always easy and cliched to say that something is worth the wait. But this, 33 tracks deep, was. Dope driving beats, concious lyrics and punchlines for days.
L.A.B.O.R. is arguably OneBeLo’s most cohesive album yet. An acronym for Language Arts Based On Reality and another play on the birth concept before B.A.B.Y., the disc sees Lo cleverly..
ALBUM: Dexter – Ultimate Breaks (Now Shipping)
Dexter is re-visiting the ultimate breaks and a certain Mayer. Limited 7″ of Dex’ awarded beats winning him the first SAE Beat Fight title. Pre-sale on MPMstore and Bandcamp is on. (7″ is in stock!) shipping via MPM Records.

FREENESS: Stypes – 7 Stories High
Local legends, Stypes are a 2 man hip hop group from chicago. Stereo/Aaron’s (Sizzle) and Stereo/Adam’s (Drok) monsterous voices and unique deliver are bold, but not overpowering. Recording and performing together for almost 10 years this underground group has put together numerous EPs, but this is their first official release. With production from incise (canada), SoulChef (new zealand), and waxbuzzard (united kingdom) this is the throwback album for all grassroots hip hop fans.
FREENESS: Akello Light – A Rainbow with Dreams
Akello always manages to blend soul/jazz with hip hop in a beautiful way…here’s another example. “A Rainbow With Dreams” is 4 short tracks, that are so very worth a download. Plenty of replay value on this one.
“This is nearly harmonizing out of key straight avant-garde jazz and hip-hop music. Akello Light uses adventurous and surrealist wordplay with a hypnotic background for this project. The sound is purposely weird, uncommon and ethereal magical.
Dream hip-hop at its best!”
